'Unity in Diversity' is one of the unique features of Indian culture. Our country has great multiplicity in its traditions, customs, attires, cuisines, languages and dialects. Each region of this motherland portrays a different hue and yet all blend and come together like the magnificent rainbow.
We recognize that communication is the key factor to bring and keep communities together, to transmit information and also to unite ideas and thoughts. The challenge before us is how to achieve effective free flowing transmission of communication when more than 1,500 languages and dialects are spoken in our country. This becomes an even further up hill task when the subject matter to be shared is of an innovative but serious nature. Many people may not comprehend the direct linkage of the theme to everyday life. It thus becomes very crucial to be able to connect and vibe with the person who is going to be the recipient of the information.
Fully cognizant of this reality, the concept of "TRANSMITTERS" was brought into existence by Dr Aniruddha Dhairyadhar Joshi (Sadguru Bapu), the founder of Aniruddha's Academy of Disaster Management.
'Transmitters' as the word conveys is a term for the persons who will effectively deliver the information to others. They are the torch bearers who will build the chain of citizens undergoing the Disaster Management training and successfully light the flames of awareness in minds across the country. The benefit of Transmitters delivering a Disaster Management course is that they will be better accepted by the local populace as they can communicate in the dialect which the common man can easily follow.
- To reach out to every Indian citizen and spread the awareness of Disaster Management in the dialect which is acceptable and understood locally
- To enable the rural and semi urban to find themselves in a position where they can not only save their own life but also protect others in their immediate surrounding
- To empower citizens across socio economic segments to be equipped to prevent, mitigate and respond positively to any form of disaster
- To support the Government and Non Government machinery during times of calamity and crisis
- To create trained resources at all levels of communities for promoting self sufficiency amongst citizens
